    Hello
    i am lookin for a nice mid-priced amp head.
    it can be tube . like 500 USD price range...
    I live in Turkey so i cant try most of them =(
    i will have to order from SAMASH (they ship to TURKEY)
    I heard : SansAmp - Gallien and Krueger - SWR -
    ASHDOWN - Trace Elliot (i guess they dont make it anymore ) - AMPEG.
    I am so confused cause i dont know anythin about all those brands. (no chance to test them =(
    COuld someone give me more info about them ?
    i want to use it in (U2 - Coldpay + Victor Wooten kinda stuff ) studio for rehearsals with loud drummer and maybe on big stages on the future.So high wattage is better i guess....
    + i heard ADAM CLAYTON uses ASHDOWN heads.
    ALSO WHAT HEAD GO WITH WHAT COMBO ??

    Has a tube preamp, and some people said they can sound like an Ashdown, and many other things. $479 here at Musicians Friend.

    I would see if Icould find a Laney Richter. I love mine. Close to the Trace and the last guy that played mine after his ampeg said he might be switching.

    I am playing a RBH-800 at present. Still have an old DP-150 easy to get the lows and the mids right where you want them on these. Don't know why they aren't better known or more popular.
